The "Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Test-Second Edition" (ADHDT-2) is published through Pro-Ed in Austin, Texas. It was formally published in 2014, following critical revisions of the ADHDT, the reportedly popular initial version of this test that was published in 1995. The ADHDT-2 purports to act as a screener for individuals exhibiting patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, symptoms commonly associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Specifically, the ease and simplicity associated with this test target use in the school environment, targeting individuals 5 to 17 years of age. The ADHDT-2 is a rating scale to be completed by an individual who has observed the child for a substantial amount of time. The test manual suggests a classroom teacher, parent, or other caregiver who has frequent interaction with the child for at least 2 weeks. Selecting the most competent individual, specifically in regard to familiarity with the child, to complete the rating scale will likely provide the most valid results. Five primary purposes are elaborated upon as identification, assessment of severity of symptoms, assistance with the Individualized Education Program (IEP) for the student, documentation, and research. The ADHDT-2 was constructed for individual administration, though several rating scales may be requested from different individuals to gain more reliable and valid reporting of potential ADHD-like behaviors.
